What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
When Profar was called up I said Wash wouldn't play him because he's a rookie and he was just another member of the 25 man. Eric on the other hand told me that wouldn't be the case Profar is an impact player and Wash has to play him. Turns out Eric was correct and I was wr..wro...wro...well I was less than correct.Not only is he playing everyday he's EFFING impressive!
Do you want to kiss him?
Eric is a man well versed in baseball.
Not that eric didn't know what he was talking about (he did), but Wash doesn't really have a choice now. At 2B he could play Profar or Garcia (both rookies) or Baker (making him unavailable to play the 4 corner positions). The choice is obvious: play Profar most days.
Agree 100% Andy and if he did have a choice he would screw it up.
Jurickson Profar is dummy-proof.
"Jurickson Profar is dummy-proof."
If we had signatures on here, this would go in mine.
A team simply is not going to call up a top talent that they have sent to the minors for the sole reason of giving them at bats on a daily basis. It defeats the purpose of sending them down if they just plop them on the bench. That was the only reason Garcia made the 25 and not Profar out of Surprise, he was not the top talent that Jurickson is, and the Rangers were not worried about slowing his growth. This is also the reason when Puig was called up Monday he was immediately inserted as the lead off hitter, and as his power shows will be moved down in the order, especially when Crawford's hamstring is well and he is removed from I.R. and returns his lead off role.
I wwish Profar was lefthanded so we could give him a shot at catching.
Profar could probably pull a "Princess Bride" and do it just fine.
Wash: "Why are you smiling?"Profar: "Because I know something you don't know."Wash: "And what is that?"Profar: "I am not left handed!"
Jesus you act like the guy solved world hunger. It isn't rocket science as to why Profar is playing everyday. Just shows how much of a scrub you are for thinking otherwise.
